Honouring Lancashire’s most influential, innovative and inspiring business people aged sub36.
Sub36 is Lancashire Business View's campaign to showcase Lancashire's young business talent. We do this through the regular magazine feature, networking events and annual awards.
Sub36 is about recognising hard work, skill and ambition. It's about recognising the great workplaces that allow the younger generation to flourish.
It’s about making our people and our businesses stronger. It’s about local entrepreneurship. It’s about celebrating Lancashire. It’s about sharing successes widely – in print, online and at the virtual events. It’s about connecting the county.
And it's about providing a platform for young business leaders to learn, grow, develop and connect.
The Lancashire Business View Sub36 programme encompasses a regular feature in the magazine, a annual 'ones to watch' special review, regular networking events plus an annual event.

"It's really important for young professionals to meet and network with fellow like-minded individuals in the region and the LBV Sub36 networking events are a great opportunity to do this.
